What? No poll question? Doesn't even seem fair to ask only two drinks. But here's a question, have you even had any of the drinks available from the Hilton's Star Trek Experience shops? I'll tell you this, Romulan Ale is VILE! But I still have an unopened bottle for keeps because they were just soo cool and I couldn't pass them up.

I don't think it "does" anything that any other ale would do...the legality of Romulan Ale was due to a trade embargo or some similar restriction because of hostile relations between the Feds and Romulans. Formal relations still remained elusive even during the Dominion War. Cooperation during the war did not denote a formal relationship as much as it was brought on by neccessity because of the Dominion/Cardassian threat to the Alpha (and Beta) quadrants. I would imagine that if we were to follow the fan series Hidden Frontier and see the more formal relations between Romulans and Feds/Klingons, then there might have been a lifting of the embargo.

lol, I am not either. I just alway heard references to Romulan Ale being illegal. Then again you never really hear of a Starship Captain bringing aboard Blood Wine and saving it for a special occasion.

There was a drink that data promised to make for Deana in the episode where they all loose their memory (and data thinks hes a bartender, and worf thinks hes in command, and theres a new first officer and riker falls for Ro....)

It was a something sunrise, but for the life of me i cannot remember, and i cant find it on memory-alpha or google.

Does anyone remember it?

This is the drink you're referring to and I did find it on Memory Alpha, in the Beverages category: Samarian Sunset

I would go for Andorian Ale simply because of the colour... I like blue drinks.

i imagine it tastes like a really strong gimlit, but instead of that limeness, its the orange flavor and fizz of airborn, with a little tang mixed in!

OMG......im going to tottaly make one of these soon!!

I can use airborn so it fizzes and changes color! it'll be like a jagerbomb!!

Ok. so.
Small glass with one shot vodka one shot rum one shot roses lime juice (so its got green in there).
In a shot glass, have crushed airborn (so its healthy too with all those vitimans!!) a teaspoon of tang!!

Drop the shot glass in the small glass and watch it fizz and change color, then CHUG TIME!!!
